"It's nice to go to a restaurant, know that you can have lunch in less than two hours, and still enjoy your food. The food is good, plentiful, and the service is always friendly."

Cicchetti. Italian for "small plates" popular in Bacari Bars or Osterie in Venice, Italy. Usually accompanied by an "Ombra" or "Shadow" which can be a glass of wine, aperitivo or a signature or classical cocktail. Italian and Venetian inspired dining brought to you from the people behind Trattoria No. 10, Sopraffina Marketcaffes and Poag Mahone's. Welcome, we can't wait to see you!

"I love small plates and I think that it is great to try and share lots of things; however, we walked away (after a bottle of wine and one round of drinks on top of 5 courses) with a bill of $650 with tip. The food was good, not life altering, and while the service was incredible, it just didn't push me over the top with ever wanting to go back...even if someone else picks up the tab."

"While sometimes it is harder to get in and out on a timely basis, I've never had anything at this restaurant that I didn't enjoy - food OR wine. The servers are always friendly and aside from a delay with an iced tea or a water refill, I've never felt neglected. It would help if they could focus a little across all servers with a more business friendly lunch but I will definitely be back."

"The food was exception, while expensive for Mexican food. I had the burrito and enjoyed it - although it came with fries, which was surprising. The drinks are very good and I loved the sangria. Our waitress was so friendly and provided wonderful service and always with a smile. I would definitely go back. Just a little word of warning. It is VERY loud. We asked for a table in the back so we could hear each other but wouldn't have stayed if we had to sit in the front."

The restaurant focuses on high quality and made-from-scratch cooking perfect for sharing. Start with one of the fine, brick-oven pizzas – maybe a white pizza bianca with homemade fresh mozzarella – then move on to one of several antipasti, perfect for sharing with friends. Pastas are imported from Italy or made in house, with so many delicious choices you may opt to try one of the three-version plates of our kitchen-fresh gnocchi or ravioli.<br /><br />Scoozi's Wine Spectator-award-winning wine list ranges from half-bottles to three-liter giants, and you'll find over 30 wines by the glass, as well as Italian specialty cocktails and cordials made in-house from fresh fruit.

"So sad to lose it. While I understand that LEYE is looking to make more money in the area, one of the reasons that Scoozi is so popular and such a beloved place in the area is that it is consistently high quality food with good service at affordable prices! We came almost every week. I just don't see having the same kind of environment with a more expensive place."

"I've been to Mastro's a bunch of times since it opened and I always have a good experience, I always have great food, and I always want to come back. I've never even just had a mediocre experience so Bravo to Mastro's!"
